Governor Cuomo is set to make his 2016 State of the State and Executive Budget Address on Wednesday (1/13/16) - but we aren't waiting.
We're sending legislators our own agenda to clean up Albany and restore the balance of power to average New Yorkers!
-Election reforms like early voting and automatic voter registration;
-Ethics reforms to reduce the power of special interests by closing the LLC loophole, limiting outside income, and requiring full disclosure of discretionary spending;
-Campaign finance reform that creates Fair Elections so candidates can run for office without being beholden to big money.
If you support an agenda to end corruption, and boost the power of voters in NY, sign our petition today!
2016 Agenda for a Strong Democracy in NY
Dear Governor Cuomo and Members of the Legislature
In a year featuring major elections across the country and in New York, our legislators must pass election reforms that strengthen our democracy. We need early voting and automatic voter registration so more New Yorkers can take part in our elections. We deserve a clean state government, where ethics scandals are no longer business as usual, but a thing of the past. In 2016 legislators must reduce the power of special interests by closing the LLC loophole, limiting outside income for legislators, and requiring the full disclosure of political spending.
